Re: How Does Your Garden Grow? 2015 edition

I forgot to mention, the frame is in untreated wood (didn't want to eat cupric sulfate), hurricane plates and chicken wire. The change from plastic netting to chicken wire was a great move! The plastic tended to slump and the lawn guys loved to shred it with the weedeaters. The wire also holds up be...

Re: How Does Your Garden Grow? 2015 edition

I really just took out a piece of paper and went to town with a pencil and calculator to be honest. We knew the space we had to work with and just winged it, measuring all the way of course. The next step will be to hang some grow lights. It gets really hot here during the summer and I like to garde...

Preventing GMO Cross Pollination.

Pollen goes a loong way. The problem with montesano's copyrighted "mule" gene, is that it doesn't make the plant totally sterile at the f1 generation, otherwise there would be no corn. However at the f2 generation, i.e. planting said corn, the plants are spindly and do not thrive. This makes it futi...

Re: think i found my fantasy BOL/off grid location

It's still pretty awesome though! It's just too close to D.C. for my taste. Neat idea though. I would love to have a basement and underground hidy places. The water table is just tooo high here. Hmm maybe when I get rich and famous I'll go buy some hill country. :D

Rock Island, Kimber, Remington, Taurus, S&W....ad nauseum. It is a mighty fine design, why would they fix that which is n...

Re: Wild Edibles Identification Guide.

Wild blueberries. They have a white haze almost as if someone tossed some talcum powder on them. Interesting tidbit: The white haze on blueberries (and juniper berries) is yeast. These berries with their yeasty bloom were used to start hooch back in the day! This is the origin of Gin (juniper) and ...
